In unbelievable amounts of pain, but I made it through the operation fine. Of course, being me I managed to break open the stitches on one of the incisions almost right away and had to go back to the hospital this morning.

Thank you all so much for your well wishes, they meant so much to me, truly. I think I have the best flist in all of El Jay land. I <3 you all! ♥♥♥♥

Well I'm really glad the op went perfectly - that really is good to hear! And hopefully you'll recover from it as soon as possible. :)

Thank you! It was scary at first and waking up from the anesthesia was not at all fun, but I'm just glad it is over.

Thank you! Sleep is not easy to come by unfortunately, the pain jolts me awake every hour or so but I's getting lots of bed rest at least.

Yay, an update! I've been thinking about you tons! If it makes you feel any better I also ripped some stitches after my stomach surgery this spring. :P

Heal well and fast, sweetheart. Lotsa love and really gentle hugs. xoxo

Yes, I am looking forward to being on the mend. I'm hoping the pain gets better soon and I can get off the pain meds!

I'm glad to hear you are alive! I just hope the pain gets more bearable soon.

Thank you so much. It should ease up in the next few days and I have plenty of pain pills until then. Which may account for my overly-lovey dispostion today, heh ;o)

The only good thing about pain is that it lets you know you are still alive even if you feel like you don't want to be.

You have another incentive to get well quick; it must really be "galling" (sorry, couldn't resist) to be on a "fundie's" prayer list. :P

glad you are okay... or at least were still okay on wednesday.

but you broke open the stitches? that's what you get from socialized medicine, cheap, unreliable stitches...

Date: 2011-09-16 10:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blue-mangos.livejournal.com
heh, you have no idea, I just got home a couple of hours ago, I've been in the hospital since yesterday morning. Stupid infection :o( Getting better now though.

From: [identity profile] debergerac.livejournal.com
broken stitches -and- an infection? it gets better and better...

i recommend self-operation the next time. it's not easy removing your own gall bladder, but it can be done with a mirror and some cheap booze.

and i'm happy you're doing better!

Date: 2011-09-19 04:48 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blue-mangos.livejournal.com
Why cheap booze? Does it have better numbing effects? (I couldn't remember the fancy word for that, I'm still on the heavy duty pain meds)

But I am on the mend, I am in far less pain now than 2 days ago and have begun weaning myself off the drugs. Hopefully you are doing better as well.

Date: 2011-09-20 12:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] debergerac.livejournal.com
no, cheap because you can buy more that way quantity versus quality, etc... it's why malt liquor is so popular.

what drugs are you taking?

From: [identity profile] blue-mangos.livejournal.com
Gotcha! I'm not much of a liqour drinker so this did not occur to me. I will stock up for the next time something goes wrong.

And I was on Dilaudid for a few days after the infection set in but I went back down to the Percoset yesterday. The pain is getting less now so I've started weaning myself off of them. No easy task given I've been on one pain pill or another for over 3 months now.

be careful with the percoset. as rush limbaugh found out, it can be addicting.

Hence my weaning myself off of them. Withdrawals are a bitch, slowing down the dose works much better than cold turkey.

Date: 2011-09-21 01:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] debergerac.livejournal.com
i don't have such problems. i have a non-addicting personality.

From: [identity profile] blue-mangos.livejournal.com
Really? You are very lucky. Mentally I am fine, I have no desire to keep taking them, that's not the problem, it's the physical withdrawal symptoms I am going through.

Date: 2011-09-22 01:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] debergerac.livejournal.com
ouch. good luck with the weaning.
